Essence of Emotion

March 27, 2015

emotions

 

Slipping through

between dark and light,

a tremulous travel

‘midst spikes of harsh reality.

A slow silvered pathway

lit by inner radiance,

a single sphere

poised then plummeting.

A solitary moment,

reflecting the perfection

captive essence of emotion.

Life and light-

fragile, failing, falling

-taut with tension

destruction upon collision.

Reflection dimmed

light fading

mourning.

Dead Dollz, Plastik, EMO-tions

This little musing is special to me as it is one that came to me in a rather strange way. I do write quite descriptively a lot and at times I find myself unable to sleep until I write down a story that has been developing in my thoughts. But writing of a more poetical leaning with short or concise phrases is not my way, usually. For those who have read my blog over the last few months you will know I have had the difficulty of facing the rapid decline of my mother’s health followed by her death in mid February. Understandably I have been through an emotional whirlpool through this time and feel like I am finally finding my footing again. The other night though, these words came to me, would not leave and let me sleep until I had written them down. That is not particularly unusual but to me this has more of a poetry feel to it than my usual style, this is something that would not come to me usually, for I have always found prose more my style whilst my mother used poetry. I am glad I wrote the words, for they feel a blend of my mother and myself- my drama and her style, so though I woke with tears in my eyes I felt they were a gift rather than a grieving.

Pink Acid, Tameless ,More than Ever

I PSed my picture above to make the nipples less visible purposefully for this post, however I personally love the nipple slip which works so well with the sliding off the shoulder look of this sexy chemise from More Than Ever. Available in a range of soft tones plus a gorgeous silvery tone for the group gift, grab the SLurl from the details.

I wanted to blog this skin again from Pink Acid at the Skin Fair, because it came with a range of appliers including one for Soul Kissers. There are several mesh lip add ons around the grid, but what I really loved about these are the ease of wearing, I just shifted mine a little higher, and the variety of fantasy themed lip styles available. There is more information on fitting and variations here: http://delasoulsl.com/2015/03/13/soul-skin-fair-2015/

A really interesting system in place at Skin Fair was a giftcard system that some designers used. When you purchased the item you received a card to use or gift to someone else. Once you add it you get the credit for the item purchased and it is delivered, to get it re-delivered you can use a Caspervend. Take a look at the quick snap below:

Soul giftcard

And now a couple picture of my Kisser ;) I requested the closed pout though I know I would have had fun with some of the more fantasy themed ( vampire,orc, neko) . In the photo above I’m not wearing the kisser and below.. voila a cute little pout.

Pink Acid Doretta with Soul Kisser closed pout

Like all mesh attachments in some windlight and settings you will see some area where the add on is more noticeable, but I am liking what I see. I will be looking out to see what other skin makers jump on board and begin creating appliers for the Soul Kissers.

Thinking of you With Love

Dox lingerie, pink, MAAI

“Heartbreaks and promises
Ive had more than my share
I’m tired of giving my love
And getting nowhere, nowhere

What I need is somebody
Who really cares
I really need a lover
A lover that wants to be there

It’s been so long
Since I touched a wanting hand
I can’t put my love on the line
That I hope you’ll understand

So baby if you want me
You’ve got to show me love
Words are so easy to say, oh ah yeah
You’ve got to show me love”

Barely Legal sale

I logged onto SL today to receive news of a sale, everything in store only 10L ! Then I saw it was at Barely Legal and I was ready to make the most of this opportunity to get some sexy new clothes and shoes. Then I kept reading.. retirement sale.. what?? The whole store.. this must be some sort of joke I thought. But no , it’s true, the owner has decided it is time to close the doors and has slashed the prices on everything to 10L . SO make sure you head there asap and as often as possible over the next month to get your hands on some incredibly low priced hot items.

Barely Legal sale

I walked out with a lot of separates, some shoes, some lingerie and a couple of awesome costumes, because you never know when you need to dress up as Harley Quinn at a moments notice.  This outfit – includes mesh mini skirt, system layer top with LTA, mesh mask and boots, all for 10L. The tights I picked up somewhere else, check the details at the end. I noticed that there are quite a lot of clothing items with Lola and Phat Azz appliers, some with Slink ( for stockings/ feet) so you can wear some mesh body parts if you wish.

Dark Posion nails, hunt prize

I wanted to show off the latest update of the SLink utilities hud which allows you to choose to color your nails individually. Shown here with the Slink applier hud that you can get for 0L as a hunt prize at Dark Passions. The hunt runs until the end of the month so check the Apply Your Body Hunt , location and hint page here : http://apply-your-body-hunts.blogspot.no/p/locations-hints.html

Valeska dress, Sascha's Designs

There is so much beauty in the world around us, whether your eyes are drawn to natural or man made beauty there is plenty to quench our thirst for pleasing views. Within SL I love finding places that recreate beautiful settings inspired by nature, it’s funny to say but my favourite places in SL are “outside”. I have noticed in the destination guide a place called Aquerelle and today I finally went exploring, so beautiful. On arrival there is a tp board providing an easy way to navigate your way around, I prefer walking as I discover so many different views when I take my time to explore a place.

I found myself waterside near the Art exhibit which felt the perfect location to show off my beautifully textured dress from Sascha’s Designs. This beautifully cut mesh dress comes with a hud giving you a choice of different textures, they are all really appealing but there was something about the mix of colors and the almost 3d aspect of the pattern that drew me to choose this to wear as my first post as a blogger for Sascha’s Designs.

 

(new) Sascha's Designs (new) 2013

 

Time for a close up before I drop down to the details, I was so excited when a new skin tone was released by WoW Skin last year. The golden tone has such a radiance about it and I absolutely adore the contrast with the lighter toned eyes I have from IKON. Ilenia is currently only available at the Skin Fair, so you can head there and try out the demos for the full range and see which beautiful combination of skin tone and makeup is perfect for you.
